Never Summer SL availability

I'm pretty set on picking up a 2011 Never Summer SL 155, but I can't afford to spend $500. From looking around, it seems that a lot of sites are sold out. Will it be difficult for me to to find a good deal on this board after the season is over?

I've been looking into a SL also. Looks like availability is sketchy at best. Hand made in Colorado. Not over produced. Full retail seems to be the only option. Though, from everything I've read...it's worth paying for what you get. Nothing but positive reviews. Let me know if you find a site with a deal. Probably won't happen, but I won't pass up a chance at getting a discount on such an incredible board.

Can't really find neversummers on sale because everybody rides them and they a limited. If you want the best you gotta pay for it. Most will say it's worth the full retail.

On the plus side, their boards come with a 3 year warranty...

There is a like new, ridden once, SL 158 on eBay right now, starting bid at $300. I need a 155 though.

Yeah, been scoping that one out. Size wise, it's perfect. Hard to pass up at the moment, not going to lie.

+1 Took me weeks of searching to find an SL-R in my size late last year. By the time I found one, price had become a secondary consideration.
